Aging is the natural process of life. Your body is not eternal, but your quality of life can influence its health. Environmental factors induced by our life habits can speed up premature aging by maximizing oxidative stress effects on our skin. 

What is oxidative stress?  

Oxidative stress is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body. ​​​​​​​

Free radicals are reactive oxygen species (ROS) with an irregular amount of electrons. This instability allows the free radicals to easily oxidize cells, proteins or lipids.

If you have ever let a sliced apple exposed to the air too long before eating it, you will surely have noticed its change of color with dark spots. The same oxidation happens to our body cells if the balance between free radicals and antioxidants is not maintained. 

Our cells have the natural ability to counter the production of free radicals by producing antioxidants that neutralize their effects and maintain the right balance in your metabolism.

    Lifestyle habits that contribute to excess free radical production

    The way you behave in life can have direct consequences on your health. Sometimes we tend to forget that external factors also have an impact on our health and the way we age through time.

    Smoking is a key factor that increase oxidative stress damage. Cigarette smoke that is inhaled contains a significant number of free radicals, molecules with unpaired electrons, and other components. As they enter the body, they cause an excess of free radicals.  Weather you choose to inhale it or not, this smoke and what it contains can alter the quality of your skin. 

    Everyday, we are more and more exposed to pollution. Aside from leaving the surface of your face feeling dirty, some of the viruses and bacteria can penetrate the epidermis layers, weaken the skin’s natural barrier and cause oxidative stress. These factors attack the skin and activate the inflammation process.

    The exposure to the sun is a key factor that accelerates signs of aging. Indeed, UV radiations increase the production of free radicals, the skin’s barrier is weakened and a lack of antioxidant defenses appears. The oxidative stress that results from radiation exposure can cause damages to the skin such as wrinkles, discoloration and loss of skin elasticity. This is why it is important to provide to your skin antioxidants that will help prevent signs of skin aging. 

    How integrating antioxidant activity in your daily skincare routine can help prevent oxidative stress?

    Antioxidants are elements that have the ability to neutralize free radicals by donating an electron. This process help the skin’s cells to retrieve a natural balance and protect your body from oxidative stress. 

    At Dermaceutic, we truly believe that science is skin’s best ally. This is why we have worked to find the perfect solution to provide to your skin antioxidant defenses that will help prevent oxidative stress and signs of aging.
